FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KFTA) — A lawsuit has been filed against a local health care company over allegations of unlawful use of taxpayer funds.
The plaintiff, Jim Parsons, and his attorneys spoke about the suit in a press conference Friday.
Preferred Family Healthcare, Inc. is already under a criminal investigation now that one of its top executives pleaded guilty to bribery charges.
But Parson’s attorneys said more people should be held responsible.
“This is about transparency and about accountability, and bringing that to the citizens in a manner as quickly as possible, because they’re the ones who pay their tax dollars,” said Joey McCutchen, trial lawyer.
The lawsuit also claims Preferred Family Healthcare paid bribes and made campaign contributions to the State General Assembly in exchange for kickbacks.
